Nation's first D'Amour Flower Festival opens

The Ba Na Hills Mountain resort, 1,500m above sea level, offers tourists the first ever D'Amour Flower Festival from this May through August.

Tourists will have the opportunity to tour a valley of nearly 100 flowers in the D'Amour garden on the funicular route – the first and the only one of its kind in Viet Nam – during summer.

The one-day package tour, priced at VND800,000 (US$38) per person, offers visits to destinations that include Le Jardin Garden and the old French villas on a bus, cable car and then a lunch. — VNS
